The Centre for Arts & Culture of Schwartz/Reisman program presents
Jewish Images from the Early Days of CBC Television
with Stuart Hands, Programme Director of The Toronto Jewish Film Festival and Gillian Helfield, Professor of Film at York University
December 9 & 16, 2019
at 7:30 pm
Don’t miss this rare opportunity to view three archival dramas from the early days of CBC Television.
Beginning in 1952, the first two decades of CBC Television saw a large and unprecedented proportion of Jewish artists working on its programmes. Revisiting this almost-forgotten age of inspired TV drama and comedy, Canadian Jews can take pride in the many prolific writers, directors and performers who made significant contributions to this era, and the stories of Jewish life they told.
Dec 9: Staff of Life (1955), starring Sammy Sales and Martin Lavut, and The Littlest of Kings (1959), based on a story by Sholem Aleichem
Dec 16: The Slip Knot (1961), starring Ben and Sylvia Lennick and Larry Mann
